UFC Hall Of Fame: Canadian Icon Georges St-Pierre Included Amongst Other Names



The UFC Hall of Fame class of 2020 featured an array of legends.

Usually, the UFC holds the ceremony during its International Fight Week. That plan went away due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The good news is, the promotion was finally able to hold the event in Las Vegas on Thursday (Sept. 23).

Georges St-Pierre was the biggest name being honored. He was inducted into the Modern Era Wing. Here’s what the once-dominant UFC Welterweight Champion had to say during his speech.

“I’ve always wanted to be a champion but it also meant a lot to me to have a positive impact on my sport,” St-Pierre said. “To change the game. When I retired from competition, I did with great pride at having made that impact.

“It’s funny. I never really liked to fight. It’s a weird thing to say from a Hall of Famer, but I never enjoyed it. If I could snap my fingers before every fight to fast forward and open my eyes and the fight was over, I would have done it every single time. I did it because I could have the freedom, the health, the wealth and the life that I have.”
